. >>> the house has ajusdjourned the week. connecticut congressman john larson joins me now, the house democratic caucus chair and a fellow native nutmegger. >> how are you? >> i'm well, thank you. i want to play something that the majority leader in the house, eric cantor, had to say yesterday to the white house about the budget negotiations and let's talk about it. >> where are the specifics? where are the discussions? nothing's going on. the people of this country are the ones that suffer. so we asked the president, sit down with us, be serious about the specifics of spending so we can stop the wasteful spending in washington and address the problem. >> so congressman, is that an accurate assessment? eric cantor saying nothing is happening? if it is accurate assessment, how worry are you about the deadline that's a couple weeks away? >> well, to be charitable to the majority leader, that it's the specificity of his proposal is lacking itself. clearly, first of all, chris, as you know, congress has got to be here in order to work. and we've been in session the fewest times in the history of any
daughters and her parents when a house fire engulfed their home in stanford, connecticut. we talked to her about six months ago at an extraordinarily difficult time in her life. we're going to catch back up with her and see how she's been doing over these last six months and how she is looking toward the future. >> must be a hard time of year for her. we look forward to catching up with her. >>> on a much different note, ann curry has traveled to middle earth to get a fantastic interview with the one, the only peter jackson. a rare interview with him. he's going to show us revolutionary ways he's bringing the hobbit to life. >>> and whether you've noticed it, a lot of advertisements now seem to be targeting men. they call it the mansumer. even some for diapers and all those things people used to call women's work. madison avenue catching up with changes that have already happened in the home. we'll talk about that coming up. >> all right. before we get to all that, let's get inside. natalie? >> good morning again, matt, savannah, and al. president obama and house speaker john boehner could
jersey and connecticut, they have had a very damaging blow. we need to act on that. the way we can meet the immediate need. it is part of the math. we will have to consider all the expenditures that we make, we'll have to make that part of the agreement. whatever dollars that we expand will have to be accounted for and will have to be paid for over a longer time. it severely and adversely affected damage, we need to make that expenditure now and we need to pay for that over the longer term. for my of standpoint, part of dealt with. >> i have taken home in good faith of what we know about the speaker's remarks as it relates to this catastrophe. i don't think anybody wants to see them in royal in politics. -- wants to see this -- see them embroiled in politics in washington. this is a disaster. in rockaway,they are still without power. we are going on six weeks now. in many parts of the city in the region, we're really pushing back the decades and it is hard been there. i think the speaker is sensitive to that, the remarks are very positive that we need to address the needs of the people.
senator from connecticut, my dear friend, senator joe lieberman. when joe lieberman announced early last year that he would not seek reelection to the senate, he called himself a lucky guy for having had the opportunity to serve his state and his country. i would contend that it is we in this chamber and the people throughout connecticut and across our nation who are the ones who are truly fortunate, for joe lieberman's life long commitment to public service, including his 24 years here in the senate. for more than a decade it has been my privilege to serve with joe as the leaders of the senate homeland security and governmental affairs committee. regardless of who has been chairman and who has been ranking member, ours has been a partnership. and indeed, mr. president, i'll never forget when i was losing the chairmanship because of the change in control, joe leaning over to me and saying "don't worry, susan. all that will change is that you'll pass me the gavel." it was typical of his thoughtfulness and generosity. and it is not coincidental, mr. president, that ours is the only committ
that's what we need for the country to move ahead. host: steven an independent in connecticut. good morning to you. caller: good morning, thanks for taking my call. i really like hillary clinton, i think she's a hard worker, i think her old man is a hard worker too and whitewater was like three wars ago. it's a long time ago. but i'd like to see jeb bush also run against hillary clinton. i think those are two no nonsense personalities that can move our nation forward. thanks. host: so hey, steven, if jeb bush, if it's a bush-clinton race, for whom would you vote? caller: oh, gosh. i would lean toward jeb at this point because he has been really pushing education and education is one of my things. so right now he's got me. host: that's stephen, independent. who did you vote for in 2008? i mean in 2012. it's 2012 now. caller: i voted for president obama and i really, really liked mitt romney. i thought he had a great personality but you know, why do i got to pay less taxes than my friend from massachusetts? so that really bugged me. host: stephen an independent in connecticut. tyrone
stockton in connecticut. katie, is apple stock down off its high a phenomenally successful stock to hold for so many investors and showing the chart again. you look at technical trading patterns in the stock. do they tell you it's time to buy, sell or hold this stock? >> they tell you it's time to buy and i say that because we need to keep the pullback of yesterday of about 6.4% in to perspective where it follows a relief rally of about 17.5%. so because of that, it has not generated any kind of breakdown in the stock. in fact, apple came back down and tested a level that it reached at the march -- i'm sorry. the may low and area seeing buying pressure in the past and it would be a natural level for buyers to come back in to apple and momentum is really not as bad as it felt yesterday from a longer term perspective. >> all right. so while we got you, if it's 445 bucks, 544 bucks, an opportunity to get in, is there a number it's a time to get out? >> certainly. the initial resistance as we call it is around $600. that's where apple has met selling pressure pretty recently. that's a conser
like a small town that's through the magic of federalism and the connecticut compromise and the continental congress, a state with two senators. one of the things i'm proudest of about our state -- senator carper knows this well -- is a tradition that just celebrated its 200th anniversary, the epitome of what we call the delaware way. it's a tradition that happens two days after every election. it's called return day, and it happens in georgetown, which is the county seat of our southern most county, sussex county. what happens two days after the election, the first thing that happens is we gather out at a farm and two by two, the candidates who ran against each other in the general election get into horse-drawn carriages and ride slowly down the main streets of georgetown where crowds of thousands come out to see the candidates who just days before were engaged in vigorous political combat being polite, being friendly and waving to the crowds. what happens after that, senator carper? mr. carper: we have this beautiful center of town in george, beautiful old brick buildi
mean connecticut, of course. [laughter] thank you so much. i will thank you more formally in a few minutes. this is really a wonderful time to pick your brains and talk with you. let me start with you, senator lieberman. when you came to congress, the united states was engaged in a cold war against totalitarian regimes, movement, and ideologies. as you leave the senate, the united states is engaged in an asymmetrical war against egalitarian -- egalitarian regimes. have we made any progress? >> we have made progress. i was about to quote lenin, sometimes it is to step foot forward, one step back. it strikes me that obviously there was enormous progress when the berlin wall went down. sadly, in russia itself, we have not really seen that returned. not quite as bad as the old stalinist days, but bad. i said to one of my colleagues that there are days it will be shot, and recent times when i left the senate wondering if i had ever done anything that would matter during that day. i think we have done something significant. this is history, the victory over communism in the soviet union
